I am having a revision tt, thigh lift and arm pit arm lift and want to have breast reduction 8 weeks later. Is that doable?

There is no reason that you couldn't have all of the procedures you listed done at the same time as a breast reduction.  You certainly would be safe to do the breast reduction 8 weeks later

It is certianly "doable" to have staged surgery. It also depends upon how iwll you recuperate from the first surgery and what type of blood loss occurred.

When subsequent cosmetic surgery is done on unoperared areas the only consideration is your comfort. If ou are comfortable, ambulatory and are recovering well from your last operation there is no reason you cannot proceed with another operation.

We plastic surgeons often combine things, but there is a limit. I think your surgeon is wise to leave the reduction for later. Eight weeks will be fine if you heal well and have no health issues.

Thank you for the question.

Assuming you're in good health and do well after your first operation (without complications)   after the first operation you will likely do well with the breast reduction surgery 8 weeks later.

Best wishes.
